Wasn't alive then, but I saw some old Zayre commercials on YouTube. Amazingly better than the latest ads for say, "Target", "Kmart" or "David Jones". (Mind you, as I've noted before, I live in a country with a media so weak, that even New Zealand has more choice!)

Thanks for the info about the Zayre's ad on YouTube, I'll look it up. K-Mart was my first job out of high school, and since I was the only person with a strong voice, they had me doing all the "Blue Light Special" announcements in the store. So I laughed myself silly when Michael Keaton popped up in BEETLEJUICE saying "Attention, K-Mart Shoppers!"

K-mart was my first job in high-school. I started as a cashier, then moved up to "Icee Bear", then moved to announcer. "Attention K-mart Shoppers. There is no smoking permitted in the store, with the exception of the grill area only. We appreciate your assistance, and as always, thank you for shopping at K-mart!"

You'd figure after 30+ years, I'd get that thing out of my head.

We also had other stores in the Kansas City area when I was growing up... Venture and Woolco. Oh, and Spartan Atlantic.

Somewhere I have a bunch of photos and Super-8 films from my K-Mart days. None from the company parties or picnics, though, fortunately. Ha!

And remember...TYFSAK!
